Well another great deal on an inline crossed my path that I just couldn't pass up.
A TC Omega Z5 with thumbhole stock. It's in near mint condition. When I first got into muzzleloader shooting (2005) I was eyeing these up as they were new back then but I went with a TC Endevour instead just because of the versatility. I'll see how the T-hole stock goes and maybe later switch to a Boyd's stock. As for optics probably another Nikon. And for loads, I have a good supply of 240gr .44 XTP and Pyrodex RS.
I'll update with my range results compared to my other inlines.

I had a purchased a Laminated Boyd stock with a LimbSaver butt pad for an Omega I had.  They are "heavy stocks", nice but heavy.  One item that was concerning, not a big deal, but confusing to me.  They install two sling swivel studs on the forearm.  When I installed the stock the ramrod would catch on the first stud because the threads were too long and protruded into the ramrod channel.  I called them but they had no idea and didn't have a shorter stud to replace it with.  I went and purchased a 3/8" swivel stud and everything was fine.  Just a heads up if you go to buy a Boyd stock.
